Debris of the tsunami attack, by Yoshi

Click image above to see this photo in Yoshi's gallery.

Yoshi was living not far (around 30 miles) from the Fukushima nuclear power plant at the time of last year's Japanese earthquake and subsequent tsunami that overwhelmed the plant and triggered one of the most serious nuclear emergencies ever. In less than three weeks we'll mark the first anniversary of the terrible day when the sea east of northern Japan unleashed its devastation. Yoshi's picture brings back the horror of that day. Whose car is that and what about the even more crushed vehicles in the background? Where are the people who used to drive these cars now, and what was the impact on their lives? I'm sure there are stories of hope and fortune in the face of a massive natural disaster, and of course stories of deepest tragedy.

And you can find more of last month's POTDs here.
